A Recent Review of this tour

Medhi was punctual, knowledge and extremely polite. He made this very meaningful tour very special to my husband and I. He picked us up from our hotel on a nice SUV (just as described) and took us on the tour. Marrakesh is such a magical place, and having Medhi as our tour guide made it that much more meaningful and certainly unforgettable. Thank you, Medhi!
